  • Day 2 Cefalù
  • After breakfast, join your Tour Manager for today's visit to Cefalù. Located on the island's northern coast, we'll explore the winding streets of this pretty medieval town and admire the magnificent Norman cathedral with its two distinctive towers. There's also a long sandy beach here, a lovely place to relax and watch the world go by.
  • Day 3 Mondello
  • We've left today free for you to enjoy some time at leisure. Perhaps you'll choose to soak up the sun and admire views from the hotel's terrace or stroll to the nearby beach with your travelling companions.
  • Day 4 Palermo
  • ​Enjoy another day at leisure or join our optional excursion to the UNESCO-listed city of Palermo. It boasts a wealth of architecture – ranging in style from Arabic to Art Nouveau – and our sightseeing tour will introduce us to its many highlights. In the company of a Local Guide, we'll see the magnificent cathedral and the stunning Cappella Palatine chapel, whose walls are adorned with stunning gold mosaics inlaid with precious stones.
  • Day 5 Segesta & Erice
  • ​Today you are free to relax with your travelling companions or discover more of the island on our optional excursion. It begins with a visit to the ancient ruins of Segesta, which date back to the 5th century BC. We'll explore the well-preserved remains of a theatre and unfinished temple, which stand on a hill surrounded by glorious countryside. Then we'll continue to the medieval walled town of Erice, which overlooks the port of Trapani from a lofty setting 750 metres above sea level. Take a stroll around the town's steep lanes and pause at the magnificent Norman castle to take in fabulous panoramic views.
  • Day 6 Mondello
  • Spend another free day relaxing at the hotel or exploring at your own pace. You could choose to take a dip in the hotel's delightful saltwater swimming pool or head out for a stroll around Mondello.
